How To Cope With The Health-Insurance Blues

At the same time, prospects remain dim for any legislation that might ease the burden on small businesses trying to provide coverage for their employees. The prospect of more hikes is sure to leave thousands of businesses scrambling for options. But with few businesses able to simply absorb insurance rate hikes of this magnitude, it unfortunately makes sense to look at all your options if you get a notice that your own health coverage is attached to a rate rocket.
